Carosone Adoption Fund

We are the Carosones and we are adopting a second Child from China. 

Many people are surprised to learn that international adoption expenses are often $35,000 or more.  And, unlike when we brought our biological children into our family, there are no insurance benefits to help pay these expenses. 

We have self funded almost half of this adoption by working hard and using saved funds.  We are fundraising for the final travel funds that are needed to bring our Howie home.  We expect to travel by mid-October at the latest.    

Thank you for your support and being part of the village it takes to bring Howie home to his forever family!
